Floyd Mayweather Dominates, Decisions a Game Canelo

By Rick Reeno

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - Before a loud sold out crowd, Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26KOs) won a twelve round majority decision over previously undefeated Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-1-1, 30KOs) to pick up the WBC/WBA/Ring titles at junior middleweight. The scores were 114-114 [criminal score by judge CJ Ross], 116-112 and 117-111 for Mayweather.

It was a boxing match, as many had expected, and Mayweather took control early with the more accurate shots. Mayweather was really letting his hands go in the fourth, throwing combinations with both hands to land on Canelo's head and body. Mayweather continued to dominate in the fifth and sixth, with Canelo attempting to change the tide. Mayweather was anding some very eye-catching punches that Canelo was unable to avoid. Canelo found a fr trickles of success in the eight. He was still outboxed for most of the three minutes.

Nothing changed through ten. Canelo made an honest effort, he never stopped trying, but Mayweather was too fast and too accurate with his counters. Canlelo was going hard to the body in the eleventh, with Mayweather not being affected by any of the punches and coming back with shots of his own to the head. Canelo was going out fighting in the twelfth, trying to land a big shot, but that shot never came with Mayweather realizing that he likely swept the fight and mostly coasted while being defensive.

[QUOTE=freethinkersam;13746733]I was disappointed in this fight: Canelo didn't approach the fight in the right way, and Mayweather was him usual self ... potshotting, sticking and moving. Granted he's GREAT, but sorry, I didn't wanna watch a glorified sparring session after…
